This quick blog is going to be the first half of the topic about reducing screen time.
There are so many pros and cons of the options we have available now;
Being able to have emails on-the-go,
Being able to Google anything we might want to find the answer for.
But there are also cons to all of that. It takes us away from the moment and however busy we are somebody can always get hold of us. I feel like we always have to respond quickly.
This is the second part of a two-part blog in my simple step series covering the topic of water and hydration (read the first part here).
In the first blog I just covered three reasons to make sure you're drinking enough water. And in this blog I'm going to cover a bit more including some ways that might help you to get started.
Today’s Thursday's Thought is about balance.
We talk so much about having a balanced lifestyle, a good work-life balance, eating a balanced diet. The word comes up so often, but what does it really mean?
It can be said as if it's a state to get to and then that's that's you sorted, that's you done you've got balance.
But in reality balance requires adjustments...
In this simple steps blog I'm covering the topic of water and hydration.
It's one of the easiest habits to start and really doesn't need to take up much time at all. Yet for a lot of people it can be one of the most difficult to actually get into a habit of consuming more water.
It's so necessary, 60% of our body is made up of water and so for all of our cells to function optimally, it's it's a necessary requirement. Studies have shown that even mild dehydration can affect your focus, your concentration, how you perform physically. So it's necessary on a physical, mental, emotional level.
So welcome to this week's Thursday's Thought where I've been thinking about values.
To me values are at the very core of where I start with my clients and in any of my programs. But often people come to me not having any idea of what their values are. Or in fact perhaps what values are.
As part of that I do these simple steps videos and this is part two of the topic, nutrition. The first video I covered just three of the holistic benefits of looking at your nutrition and maybe making some simple changes in order to be eating a more natural diet.
In this video I'm going to consider some ways that you could get started - so three simple steps in order to start introducing a healthier more nutritious diet into your lifestyle.
In this short Thursdays Thought I'm covering the idea of limiting versus empowering questions.
One of my programs the emphasis is around supporting people to put into practice external well-being habits that are going to support them to have lasting change. Whether that's reducing stress or start healthy eating, whatever it may be. Alongside that I couple it with what's going on internally;
What are their beliefs?
And how is that impacting making these lasting changes?
In this series of blogs, this is the first part of two on nutrition. Today I'm just going to look at what three holistic benefits are to looking at your nutrition, and eating more naturally as a bit of a rule of thumb.
Firstly I want to say there's so much information out there on nutrition and people have different views and beliefs and different health conditions that all affect what you are and aren't going to eat. I'm not going to cover any particular diet for example vegan, keto, gluten-free, whatever, I'm not a nutritionist or dietitian.
This is part 2 of my topic gratitude, in the first blog I covered the holistic benefits of being more grateful and how it can be transformative both personally and in your career (Read it here). This blog I'm going to focus on five simple steps on how to get started.
This week's Thursday's thought is about the belief of being enough.
I recently attended an audience with Marisa Peer and as a therapist she explains that really we all have the same underlying core beliefs, and one of them being a limiting belief of ‘I am not enough’. This belief is something that we've heard or interpreted from a very young age and then throughout our lives we've continued to see the evidence that reinforces what we already believe.
